Update! – French Immersion Kindergarten Intake

Short summary – A group of PAC executive members and concerned parents met with the VSB twice and had VSB staff walk through our school. Please see the full summary here.
Action items
We want to continue advancing the case that our parents are passionate about restoring the removed kindergarten classes.  We will schedule a meeting with Andrew Wilkinson, the MLA for our riding, to go along with the other MLA meeting we have already conducted.  We have been asking our parents to write letters and contact key decision makers — we will make another push via our  class parents.
Original letters are often more effective, but we’ve provided contact information and some templates to provide ideas below.

We have provided a template letter attached, if you wish to use it as a base: VSB Letter Template
